Spicing up some photos with layers and blend modes


Recommended Posts

I've revived a few photos from my archive, using some texture images I've collected -- mostly from legitimate free sources with no copyright issues. These three are of an old trumpet I bought a few years ago. It's no longer playable (and I couldn't play it if it were) but I thought it was photogenic. These three pics have two texture layers, added one at a time, and I tried various combinations of blend mode and transparency till I found one I liked. I think the first one and the third one have something of a nineteen-fifties feel (I was there ;) ) ...

This one reminds me of an album cover, but I can't think which one. Do let me know if you do!

I’m afraid I find it very hard to resist making some kind of reference to deer!
